"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."
Thomas Edison, inventor (1847-1931)
Since I was a young woman, growing up in the 60s and 70s, I have believed that LOVE is 'THE' answer. The culture around me, the music I listened to, and the society that I ran with was based on the radical beliefs of my generation. Yes, radical... for that time and era. We had these aspirations that our planet and humanity should and would embrace peace, love, equality and kindness. That love WAS the answer. It seemed to me that we were on to something, that those seeds were planted for a universal reason. Yes, we did things that helped to awaken us, to push the boundaries of the contemporary world around us. Yes, we had hope that our generation would be the one to change the world forever for the better. And for a brief speck of a moment in time, we truly believed in the power of LOVE.
Today, as I sit here surrounded by so many changes since that 'Summer of Love', I wonder where that movement went. Why did those intentions leave our collective quintessence? Where would mankind be now if we had succeeded in changing the world and had evolved together in a big giant leap?
Presently I feel like I am, that most of us are, perched on the edge of a cliff that is spiked with apathy, pitted with anger and rooted in aggression. Are we on the verge of falling off onto the thorns of hatred?
I don’t want to fall off that cliff. I want to believe that the power of love IS the answer. I want to see a revival of those feelings that anything is possible if we have true intentions of doing the right things. I am looking for a renaissance toward acceptance of each other no matter our differences, non-violence for all living beings and reverence for our Mother Earth.
“There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness, and truth.”
Leo Tolstoy, novelist and philosopher (1828-1910)

been a while, spent it dreaming
days and nights go by
hours meld into scenes of life
seasons change in step with time
and you stay stuck inside my mind
feeling loneliness, as only a loner can
no matter how much laughter
or what swirls by each day
when that fades and quiet returns
it's emptiness that holds my hand
reach for all the love i can
my head up, beneath a dark sky
for when the days grow short
and life tempts closing down
I'll turn and face some questions
in all my aloneness
will be able to look upon
while you stay stuck
inside my mind
